A Farewell to Arms Chapter 14
When we wakes up the next day and sees Miss Gage in the sunlight, he rethinks his comment about her being pretty. She finds him sleeping with the vermouth bottle and scolds him for drinking alone. She tells him that Miss Barkley has arrived at the hospital. He requests a barber as she washes him up. A barber comes and mistakenly thinks Fred is an Austrian officer. He tells him that he could kill him with his razor. The mood is very tense and Fred cannot understand it. When the barber leaves, the porter laughs at the mix up. Catherine arrives. Fred recounts: "She looked fresh and young and very beautiful. I thought I had never seen anyone so beautiful." Chapter 14, pg. 91. They kiss and he thanks her for coming. He wants to have sex even though he's sick. She shuts the door and they do. Afterwards she says that now he should know that she loves him, because that was madness. As she goes out, Fred thinks, "God knows I didn't mean to fall in love with her." Chapter 14, pg. 93 Miss Gage enters and announces that the doctor has arrived.
